Interesting Times Bureau
Who we are and what we offer
Welcome to the upper class of
Interesting Times Bureau is the main project developed by the Non-Profit organisation Asociatia Coolturala “Noua Ne Pasa!” that promotes urban arts, local history and businesses. The name is a tribute to the great Terry Pratchett, who ‘discovered’ this wise Chinese curse: ” May you live in interesting times”.
Our goal is to create tours that are both learning experiences and unadulterated fun. We have gathered a great mix of local street artists, musicians, historians, photographers and urban explorers so that you could see Bucharest through their eyes and, we hope, fall in love with the city and its people.
Should we succeed or fail in any of that, we have you, our beloved travelling partners, to decide (and rate or rant on Tripadvisor). That is why the payment for our services is done always at the end of the tour. If you are not 100% satisfied, the tour is on us.
If you have any questions about us, our tours, general booking enquiries or you would just like to say hi, please use the contact details below or find us on facebook. We don’t have a FAQ page as we like to keep things close and personal.

Fasten your seatbelts! You’re about to take a journey into the heart of ‘little paris,’ a nickname that indicates just how dreamily grandiose the architecture of Bucharest can be. We’ll show you the city’s top historical sites and tell you a few tales of life behind the iron curtain. And did we mention that you’re going to experience all this whilst getting your beer on?! All the best craft beers and local brands will be handed to you with a friendly smile from your local guide as we frequent some of the best beer joints in the city. History and beer?! You can thank us later…
